IPL 2019 | Twitter Reacts to Eventful Clash Between Royals & Kings XI

Kings XI Punjab finally managed to break their duck at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium against Rajasthan Royals as they sealed a 14-run victory on Monday. But the game is likely to be remembered for more than just that, with Ravichandran Ashwin and Jos Buttler involved in a massive controversy.

Earlier in the day, Chris Gayle got going with the bat and went on to score a fine half-century. His innings and Sarfaraz Khan’s cameo helped the visitors post a competitive 185 runs on the board.

Rajasthan Royals got off to a flying start, with Jos Buttler doing a bulk of the damage. But just as he was about to take the game away from the visitors, Ashwin’s effort to Mankad him brought about his downfall, but it raised a massive debate.

 

Eventually, that proved to be the turned point of the game as RR’s run-chase fell wayward and ended up managing just 170 on the board.
